“Holiday Destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Hand the most amazing ten days in the Tivoli Marina, Portimao. What a fantastic hotel in the most stunning location, with a gorgeous salt water pool and great restaurants. I would like to thank all the wonderful staff who made our stay for my sisters wedding the most amazing and enjoyable experience. All the staff collectively were possibly the best we have encountered, so thank you to all. Laura & Cormac

Room Tip: Ask for Marina View up in the main hotel.

After a slight mix up (I was convinced we were at Tivoli in Vilamoura) we arrived at the correct location of Portimao. Was very impressed by the décor of the reception and friendliness and efficiency of the staff. We were escorted to our apartment by golf buggy and were pleased with what we saw on arrival - very spacious and well equipped.

Used the gym which was modern and well equipped with a nice view of the marina and only got to use the pool once, as weather wasn't great, but that was clean and had lots of sunbeds, loungers etc.

Breakfast was good but did get a little 'samey' after 7 mornings. Good coffee and you could have omelettes freshly made. Ate at most of the on site restaurants as preferred them to the ones up the hill in Praia Da Rocha. All of the meals were of high standard, good sized portions, reasonably priced and didn't have to wait too long either. Had a very nice seafood Cataplana - highly recommended.

Was my birthday during our trip and returned from a shopping trip to find an ice bucket with fizzy wine and a plate with a chocolate dessert on. A lovely gesture.

Will definitely return here.

Room Tip: Had room 220. Not too far from breakfast/reception - good view to marina.

Absolutely loved staying in the Tivoli Marina in Portimao. From the second we arrived the staff made our stay very enjoyable. They kindness was effortless, from organizing a boat trip for us to making us packed breakfasts for our trip home as we were leaving before breakfast was served. The room was large and clear, being cleaned on a daily bases. It was also well stocked with plenty of towels, soups ect.

The hotel is located in a fantastic place only minutes walk from the beach and lots of modestly priced restaurants along the beach (both to your left and right).

We had a hire car which for us was a vital as we visited Fiesta, Silves, Splash and Slide, different beaches ect. There was lots of underground parking at the hotel and it was very safe.

The breakfast was great and plentiful, with something for everyone - my boyfriend was delighted with the scrambled egg :)

Are room was situated close to the main area, if possible I would request this but unless you have walking difficulties the distance to the other parts of the hotel along the marina are really not that far (7 min max)

The Hotel was very well priced for what you get.

All in all the Hotel thankfully added to our overall amazing first trip to Portugal!

Thank you!

I finally got my partner to take a break abroad. I chose well, the Tivoli marina was everything I'd hoped for. Perfect location. Wonderful staff. Fabulous food. What else could anyone ask for. We were given an upgrade on arrival. The only problem we had was choosing what to have for breakfast, the choice was vast and all fresh. We will most certainly be booking for next year and staying a lot longer.

We had our wedding here recently and it was a magical experience. Over 70 of our guests stayed in the hotel and everybody commented on how wonderful the staff are (expecially Carlos and Rui in the bar!). The location is just perfect, away from the noise of Praia da Rocha, but close enough to walk there to restaurants/bars. The views from the restaurant / breakfast area are just beautiful and the food is great. We were lucky to have our rooms in the main complex near the restaurant area. There is a great pool area with a large salt water pool. A perfect location for a relaxing holiday with family.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the marina have the best views.

stayed here in august for our sons wedding,had booked and paid last november and confirmed early 2013 only to arrive and be shown to a studio apartment that could not be further from the main complex.on pointing this to managment we were moved to another apartment which was even more secluded tucked in by the kitchen.even the golf buggy driver could not believe where we had been allocated,we had asked for an apartment to sleep 3 people and were given a studio with a rickity folding bed which was not suitable for a 30 year old.all in all a very dissapointing experience.will not be going back,

Room Tip: close to main reception area.

Stayed for a week in this hotel for a wedding. I have never experienced such helpful, pleasant staff. They could not do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble. We were a large crowd (over 80) but the barman remembered our names! Every staff member smiled and saluted all day. The wedding was magic. Everything worked like perfectly. the food was delicious and service impeccable. Would recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing pool may be quieter but there was no noise at night
